Dunno, I disliked the sword of truth intensely...likely that one.

Terry Goodkind has written many incredibly creepy rape scenes. So yeah, definitely that one.


I recommend his books to anyone who likes high fantasy who doesn't mind skipping over an (again, I stress, often incredibly fucking creepy in a "no no no no nope no no nope" or "holy crap that's sadistic" kind of way) rape scene or two per book (no male protagonist is safe, nor are the major female supporting characters) and also doesn't mind Objectivist preaching towards the end of the first series and who also doesn't mind ...
well, it's a long list

Again on the subject of the book I'm presently into - and it does feel like a holiday romance or brief infatuation - pages 226/227 describe the most horrific Brony fic I could imagine. I had to check reality still existed and I hadn't become part of WoC's imagination.

I was once reprimanded to judge a dressage competition. Don't ask. However, it did not end like THAT.

Reading Rule 34 by Charles Stross.

I was initially turned off by the fact that the entire story is told in the second person, but I'll be damned if he doesn't actually make it work, despite hopping between multiple characters. And being Stross, the story and characters are well worth it.

Anyone looking for a good sci-fi crime novel, check it out.

I think he means "requisitioned". British citizens are free people only when their services are not required by the Queen.

Currently speed-reading Noble House by James Clavell.

Already finished Shogun, almost finished Noble House, and hoping to finish the other 4 novels by the end of July.
